11/19- Due to maintenance activity short trains will operate JSQ-33(HOB) 1:30am-5am. Expect additional passenger congestion.



Just wonderful. It doesn't make much sense to me how maintenance work would be helped by running shorter trains -- as opposed to running trains even less frequently than they do overnight.

And then we can certainly "expect additional passenger congestion" when 2015 rolls around and they start de-salination work on the uptown tubes. That will be fun.


They might be doing some work at the end of a platform? At least they're announcing this in advance, there have been times I've had to run for short trains with no warning.

That was a cute story / conspiracy theory. The bottom line is that the extension has been talked about for at least a decade, even before Christie came to power. While its not necessarily critical to Jersey City, its an important part of expanding PATH service and redeveloping Newark, which means it should be a priority for New Jersey. Even just one new station in Newark -- although there has been talk of adding a PATH station between the airport and Penn Station -- would radically alter the prospects of Newark's redevelopment program. And as prices in cities, especially Jersey City, continue to rise, adding more transit accessible land will be critical to the economic survival of the state. The airport extension, even in the best case scenario is 10 to 20 years out, which is just about the the ideal time to start expanding Newark's nascent redevelopment.

Forget the EWR service.

Is there a petition or something that is out there that is addressing this? I am sure we can get a lot of signatures thru this medium and all other online forums.

It'll be better than just bitching about it on this forum.

Did anyone really think the EWR PATH connection was ever really going to happen? It was just a ploy to divert attention and throw a few bucks to consultants. The PA can't get out of its own way, they aren't going to build a multi-billion, unnecessary, money-losing train line.

Did you see the PATH alert that this Sunday that the JSQ-33 via HOB train will be on a 20 minutes schedule until 3pm? Really? Since they went to a 12 minute schedule, people are being left behind at the stations because there is no room. Really PATH???? You increase fares and then keep dropping service. #PATHetic

I agree, the idea of an extension to EWR is/was a terrible prospect for JC residents. Handy the half dozen times a year that we are heading to the airport but absolutely making our commutes a misery with New Yorkers and tourists likely to overrun the trains the other 360 days of the year.

The fact that Fulop supported the notion when it would be a boon to non residents at the expense of JCitizens is quite insulting imo... Let's hope this is the end to the debacle.

Great news. And a great article.

With all of the work the PATH needs, including additional infrastructure to support the 30,000+ new residents after the new construction is completed, spending $1.5 billion+ on such a frivolous endeavor was truly absurd.

Not to mention that the already overcrowded trains would get even worse with more people bringing their luggage on the PATH. No thanks.

I don't think MTA service from Brooklyn at times is much better.....I guess if things are too terrible here, there always is Bayonne or Staten Island :)

JSQ - 33rd is being slowed down to 12 minutes from 10 minutes
NWK - JSQ is being slowed down from 10-15 minutes all the way to 20 minutes.

So yeah, more cuts to service. I expect by this time next year they will just shut the entire system down and put locks on the entrance. But you will have to pay $5 to look at the entranceway.

edit: actually, it's not clear if this is just for weekends, or weekdays too? I think it's just weekends, in which case it might be a service increase? Someone needs to grab one of the actual physical schedules in the station and report back.


I think it's just Sundays, in which case it is an increase in service, bringing Sunday service in line with Saturday. I checked the pamphlets in the WTC station today, but of course they are not updated.

So PATH riders are now paying more than MTA riders all while getting less service. Sweet merciful crap!

Increasing the frequency? Puh-leeze. It'll probably be a cold day in hell before that happened!



Seriously. I wouldn't be surprised if they actually cut service.

I can't figure it out either. This helpful message is on the PATH website:

Quote:
10/24/2014 1:50:07 PM
Starting 10/26 new train schedules will be in effect. New Timetables are in literature racks at all stations, or visit www.panynj.gov/path


So to find out the schedule, it tells me to go to the PATH website, where it just tells me to go to the PATH website? The schedules page is effective January 2014.

http://www.panynj.gov/path/full-schedules.html

So...I have no idea.

That's not at all what they tweeted yesterday: "@PATHTrain ยท
#PATH service on Mon 10/13/14 (Columbus Day): Two lines running - JSQ-33 (via HOB) and NWK-WTC, which will stop at Exchange Pl and WTC." Worse communication fail than usual, and that's saying something!

All 4 lines are running on a weekday schedule but it is modified which means all 4 lines are running every 10 minutes. This includes the WTC line withthe Exchange Pl. station open as well.

Anyone know what the PATH Schedule is today? The PATH website says holiday schedule with all 4 lines running, but PATH twitter page yesterday tweeted that only 2 lines were running today the NWK-WTC and 33rd-JSQ via Hoboken. Makes utterly no sense.

Apparently no one at the ferry knew either - there were so many people that around 6-7pm you had to wait for the NEXT ferry. At least it was better to wait the 15 min than to bike up to Christopher or worse, 33rd for the elevator and accessible turnstiles, only to have to come back. (Of course, why would they helpfully direct people to WTC PATH when they could collect the ferry fare.)

It's fuking pathetic is what it is. If it wasn't for an MTA clerk at the uptown side of the 23rd St F/M telling us to get on the F to West 4th and transfer to the A/C/E to World Trade (yes, they opened that line due to the fire), most people would have had no damn clue that WTC was open.

YOU JUST CLOSED THE ENTIRE DAMN LINE! PLACE SOME MINIMUM WAGE INTERN AT EACH GATE STATING THAT THE WTC LINE IS OPEN AND TO TAKE THE MTA DOWN THERE! I GUARANTEE YOU THAT THE DOZENS UPON SCORES UPON HUNDREDS OF FARES YOU GAIN BY DOING THIS OFFSETS THE COST OF THE FIVE EMPLOYEES YOU PAY TO DO SUCH A THING!

So, PATH trains are indeed running from WTC tonight, to make up for the track fire that shut down the 33rd St line.

Would it kill them to put a sign on the gates at Christopher, 9th, etc letting riders know this?! Evidently it would. NO signage at all, except for the usual "WTC closed on weekends."

What you had at 9th was a line of cabs insisting that WTC is closed, and they can get you home for a hundred dollars.

Another epic fail, PATH.


Makes you wonder what kind of repairs they are doing on WTC weekends, if they can run trains on it anyway.
